The Human Library aims to establish a safe conversational space in which a “library” of people share their experiences with stigma, prejudice, and/or discrimination in an effort to challenge societal prejudices.
Perseverance, finding your passion and making global connections are prevalent themes you will encounter during this unique experience.
“Readers” can check out a book for up to 30 minutes at a time.
This month, over 40 volunteers from the NOVA community assembled and packed over 100 comfort cases to spread a little love to children in foster care. For our 50th Anniversary Day of Service and Foster Care month, NOVA Alexandria partnered with Comfort Cases and Great Expectations to host a packing party. LTR took the lead in coordinating the event and requesting donations from the community. The donations from our campus and beyond were tremendous. Thanks to all who did their part to make this day a success.

Since 1998, Stop Hunger Now has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries all over the world. In 2005, the organization created its meal-packaging program. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets.
Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country. The majority of Stop Hunger Now’s meals supply school lunch programs. Due to the ease of assembly and transport, meals can be shipped to areas in crisis. This process for distribution, through school feeding programs in hunger-stricken regions, is seen as a practical means to end hunger.
